Very Insightful

The show is fantastic. I love triathlon and have been doing the sports for a long time. I know some of the characters that did history on the sport so it is great to hear their stories on how our sport developed. John and Bevan are also pretty funny so they make the show more enjoyable

History of Triathlon

I will try to keep this short. I started competing in Triathlons in 1982. I was an age grouper, but in many races I competed alongside the Big Four along with many other "notables." It's the "notables" that make this Podcast so OUTSTANDING. Yea, we want to hear interviews of the Big Four, and they are compelling. But then you hear legends like Ken Glah, Mike Pigg and who can discount Mike Rieilly interviewed. It really brings back the good old days. EXCELLENT podcast. If you compete in the great sport of Triathlon, this podcast is a must. Great job mates!!
